Start by heating the gooseberries in a pot with some sugar and water. When the gooseberries have softened, crush them with the back of a fork. While the gooseberries are cooling, mix yogurt, sugar and vanilla with cream to make the creamy base of the fool. Then swirl through the crushed gooseberries and serve!
